Biyu Jade He, PhD

New York University Langone Medical Center


Dr. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience and Physiology, and Radiology at New York University. She obtained her B.S. in Biology from Tsinghua University and her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Washington University.

Prior to joining NYU, she led her own independent research group in the intramural research program of the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, with an intramural equivalent of the NIH Director’s Early Independence Award. (2010-2015)

Her research uses a combination of invasive and non-invasive multimodal human brain imaging, brain stimulation, and computational and theoretical approaches to investigate the neural bases of conscious vs. unconscious processing in the human brain. Other research interests include spontaneous brain activity, arrhythmic brain activity and nonlinear brain dynamics. She has delivered keynote lectures at multiple international conferences and is currently a deputy editor of Neuroscience of Consciousness (OUP).

Biyu attained her B.S. in biology from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. She received her Ph.D. in Neurosciences from Washington University in St. Louis, where she studied the functional significance and spatiotemporal organization of spontaneous brain activity, as well as the neural basis of the fMRI signal.
